Ingredients:  
4 large fresh ears of corn, yellow or white, husks and silk removed
3 tablespoons butter
1/2 teaspoon sugar
Salt and pepper to taste
2 teaspoons chopped fresh chives (optional)
Milk or cream, if needed

Directions:
Directions:
The best way to cut the kernels off of the cob is in a deep, wide bowl. You can certainly use a cutting board, but the kernels tend to pop all over. Place the cob stem end down. Run the knife down the sides, turning the cob after each cut, until all of the kernels are removed. Then, holding the stem end in your hand, scrape the sides again with the back side of the knife to remove any remaining milk.
Heat a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add the butter and melt. Add the corn, any juices from the bowl, sugar, salt and pepper. Stir well to combine. Cover; reduce heat to medium and cook until hot. Add the chives and stir again. If the corn is dry, or if you would like it creamier, and some milk or cream, cover again, and heat thoroughly. Serve immediately or let set over very low heat, covered, until ready to use.
Note: You could use the same cooking technique with frozen corn. For that, you will need to add some milk or cream.

Personal Notes:
When fresh corn is in season, we eat it often, usually on the cob. However, depending on the meal, it is more appropriate to cut off the kernels. It is really easy to do, as long as you have a sharp knife. If you plan to do a lot of corn, you could use a corn scraper. Of course, you always want very fresh corn but, for this recipe, you need the freshest, so that it is as juicy and milky as possible
